OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS SERMON!
You know it is Christmas when your Pastor gives his first Christmas sermon and you get your first Christmas card. It is time to hit the ground running, turkey left overs still in the frig! I love left overs for about 4 days, after that I have had enough. I think I am there already! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I really did not do all that I wanted to do this weekend. I did however, spend lots of time with my children. Of course, being with my family was the best part. The first picture is of my daughter, Monique and I. Princess Maya is always very happy to pose for Grandma. Noah, as usual, is a hit and miss. Keeping him still for a picture is a miracle. Vanessa, my younger daughter you have all seen before.
Today, I was feeling very lazy (left over turkey probably contributed to this). I stayed in bed after church and watched Julie/Julia. The winds here were 50 mph, and my yard is a mess. My awning came down, plants fell over and some branches broke off the Sycamore tree in the back. All the ash on the mountains, has been cleaned up, it is all in my yard, so the mountains look good.
I have Noah three days this week, so I will not be able to clean up until later. I need to decorate the Church this week and I have a doctor's test, I do not want to take, but must this week. So, my life is full. I normally am done with Christmas shopping, however, not this year. So, yes I have hit the ground running. Isn't that what Christmas is all about? Jesus,family, church, decorating, presents, traditions it is what makes this month so wonderful.
So take a deep breath, give your cares to God, because He cares for you and go shopping! Blessings, Martha
